From making a few manual soups I don't think this rule is explosive (even in symmetric soups!), but it does have this very common methuselah, with a maximum population of 13521 and a minimum population of 5:
It stabilizes after 9774 generations.

x = 3, y = 3, rule = B2-an3-i46n/S1c25k78

The 2-state 1xN cases are pretty simple but haven't had a rigorous proof yet, so I'll show that their maximum period is 2 (other than 1x2 and 1x1, their periods are 1): Because we are currently disregarding B0 rules and any B1e-like birth transition will result in an explosive rule, we are left with...
